Police face questions over Tube shooting

PUBLISHED August 17, 2005

London's top police officer is under pressure following leaked documents which detail the events leading to the mistaken shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes.

The Brazilian was killed at Stockwell Tube station on July 22, a day after the failed bomb attempts, by officers who mistook him for a suicide bomber.
Metropolitan Police commissioner Sir Ian Blair has previously apologised for the incident.
